Yes, it runs on JDK10. What does "java -version" at the command line say?

If you need to tell NetBeans where the JDK is, check the contents of
etc/netbeans.conf in your installation for these lines:

# Default location of JDK:
# (set by installer or commented out if launcher should decide)
# It can be overridden on command line by using --jdkhome <dir>
# Be careful when changing jdkhome.
# There are two NetBeans launchers for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) and
# installer points to one of those in the NetBeans application shortcut
# based on the Java version selected at installation time.
